#6  The capper is the virus that comes after STUXNET. It collected all the data and sent it back to the original programmers so they could see the effects of what they had done. Bottom line, it killed 1,000 centerfuge and even the brag video on Iran TV proved it.

A more in depth study here.

The next hit will destroy the plant.

#5  Actually it's an hour video, and the good stuff comes around the 40 - 45 minute mark.

Bottom line:
1) The really destructive code was only 2 lines. The rest of the code was making sure the attacks occurred randomly.
2) He concludes that the team(s) that wrote this built a mirror copy of the Iranian uranium enrichment facility to make sure the attack would work as designed.

#4  Basically stuxnet was coded by someone with working knowledge of the Iranian nuclear set up. And it was written to deceive not to destroy the process. Very interesting clip I recommend it.
